Adtec Digital is a leading manufacturer of broadcast video products.  Featuring multi-channel, 4K(UHD)/HD/SD encode or decode, dense audio, VANC processing, and low latency, these all-in-one carriers are ideal for demanding broadcast video applications. Each encoder carrier supports up to four (4) channels of HD/SD encoding or a single 4K(UHD) channel . Each decoder carriers supports up to two (2) channels of HD/SD decoding.  These carriers can be combined in one frame along with any transport carriers you require. 
Key Features:
  • 4K (UHD) Support
  • Multi-Codec Capable
          ( HEVC / AVC / MPEG2 )
  • Support for 10-bit & 4:2:2
  • Up to Eight Pairs of Audio per Video (codec dependent)
  • Low Latency
  • SNMP Management &  Monitoring

On-the-Go Encoder/Decoder Configurations:     

For applications requiring less channel density or a more portable form factor, the AFN-250 frame model offers a smaller, more economical solution. These models are feature rich and easy to use. With support from 4K HEVC with on-board ASI and IP multiplexers to a single channel of MPEG2 SD and everything in between, these models can be feature-keyed to meet your needs and budget.
